Please, Mr. Jailer, let Amy Locane go free!
Amy Locane -- who played Sandy in the original "Melrose Place" -- was just charged with killing someone in a drunk driving accident last night.
According to the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office, Locane plowed into the passenger side of another car in Montgomery, New Jersey... killing the woman sitting in the front seat.
The driver of the car was flown to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. Locane was arrested at the scene for DUI and taken to a different hospital for treatment.
According to the Prosecutor, Locane was also involved in a minor hit-and-run accident right before the deadly crash.
Locane admitted to police she drank several glasses of wine before getting behind the wheel, The Star-Ledger reports.
Locane, who also starred alongside Johnny Depp in "Cry-Baby," was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and third-degree assault by auto and faces 5-10 years in prison if convicted. Bail is yet to be set.

Always wondered what happened to her. Drunk in Jersey like the best of us.

Someone get her in touch with Rebecca Gayheart and Halle Berry's lawyers.
|by Wade Walker||reply 2||06/28/2010|
I'm surprised she still looks so good. Pretty good mug shot.
|by Wade Walker||reply 3||06/28/2010|
Blonde and attractive? No jail time then.
|by Wade Walker||reply 4||06/28/2010|
I wonder what Rachel Sweet thinks about this.

Amanda Knox was tried in Italy, where they only acquit if you're voluptuous and brunette.

Fuck the bitch!%0D %0D You know there only going to give her Community Service.
|by Wade Walker||reply 10||06/28/2010|
Who did she play? I got all those girls mixed up except Heather Locklear, Marcia Cross, & the cute red head who played Sydney.
|by Wade Walker||reply 11||06/28/2010|
Brilliant. Why do these idiots get behind the wheel after boozing it up? Has anything good ever come of it?
|by Wade Walker||reply 12||06/28/2010|
Doesn't sound like she has a lot of support from her fellow celebrities. Here are some of the cruelest responses from Twitter:
Matthew Broderick (matthewbroderick): no x-cuse...book her, danno
Brandy Norwood (brandysinger): crazy bitch needs to lrn 2 drive...poor fam!
Rebecca Gayheart (beccagaydane): so sad...now that im a mom i cldn't imagine :*(
Laura Bush (laurawb1ldy): amylocane is why gwb & i support the death penalty.

Apparently she was plowing into other vehicles trying to get away.
|by Wade Walker||reply 15||06/28/2010|
How very, very irresponsible of her. When those police are through with her, all she'll be left with is that proverbial wish: that she'd never been born.
|by Wade Walker||reply 16||06/28/2010|
Stupid bitch!! Make it look like suicide!
|by Wade Walker||reply 17||06/28/2010|
Anyone remember her from School Ties?%0D %0D %0D %0D %0D I haven't heard anything about her in years.
|by Wade Walker||reply 18||06/29/2010|
I was a huge fan of the show. Or at least I thought so. Who the hell was 'Sandy'?
|by Wade Walker||reply 19||06/29/2010|
R19, I think she was ditched affter the first season
|by Wade Walker||reply 20||06/29/2010|
Her next role will be in Concrete Jungle.
|by Wade Walker||reply 21||06/29/2010|
Yeah R18, she was in School Ties and Cry Baby.
|by Wade Walker||reply 22||06/29/2010|
Look at the chins on her husband...
|by Wade Walker||reply 23||06/29/2010|
Well, seeing those pics of her hubby atr23 and 24, it's no wonder why she drinks. Is that fatty fireman really the best she could do?
|by Wade Walker||reply 25||06/29/2010|
He's not just a volunteer fire fighter, he owns a liquor store.
|by Wade Walker||reply 26||06/29/2010|
That baby in R23's link looks dead.
|by Wade Walker||reply 27||06/29/2010|
R14 I thought those were real for a full two minutes...LMMFAO
|by Wade Walker||reply 28||06/29/2010|
What about the children ? (her children)
|by Wade Walker||reply 29||06/29/2010|
They'll just have to move into the liquor store. Or maybe John Waters will take them in.

Oh, well that makes all the difference. Clearly having a supplier on hand was the attraction for Amy.
|by Wade Walker||reply 31||06/29/2010|
Still no trial date? what the heck?
|by Wade Walker||reply 32||06/04/2012|
Would you want her to go free if it was your partner, your mom or your best friend who was killed?
Fry the bitch.
|by Wade Walker||reply 33||06/06/2012|
The post is nearly two years old, but I gave R14 a W&W. Very funny. If we keep flagging it, it may appear on the side bar and freak him out.
|by Wade Walker||reply 34||06/06/2012|
She didn't even last a full season. She left when Jo came midway through the first season of MP
|by Wade Walker||reply 35||06/06/2012|
Tentative trial date set for Sept. 10th. The judge is allowing the black box recorder data into evidence.
|by Wade Walker||reply 36||07/26/2012|
Well as long as you have money they let you get away with murder
Brandy, Halle Berry, Rebecca Gayheart.... So on and so on
|by Wade Walker||reply 37||07/26/2012|
Sad story all around. There was something really appealing about her. Has John Waters weighed in? If he can feel compassion for the Manson girls, surely he can spare a bit for this chick.
|by Wade Walker||reply 38||07/26/2012|
R35, Vanessa Williams (the other one) only did one season, too. I wonder why. The show was a hit.

That's rich coming from fellow murderer. What a damn stupid cunt brandy is
|by Wade Walker||reply 40||07/26/2012|
That was satire, R40. See R28.
|by Wade Walker||reply 41||07/26/2012|
I remember how protective John Waters was of her during filming of Cry Baby. Guess she's not that innocent after all.
|by Wade Walker||reply 42||07/26/2012|
R35--If I recall correctly, the "other" Vanessa Williams who did "MP" left the show when she complained about the way her character was written. Her only memorable plot was when she drove Billy to Compton to "sensitize" about civil rights in 1992 post-riots L.A.
|by Wade Walker||reply 44||07/26/2012|
R44 - You forgot about the whole arc about her wedding plans and whether she would lose Matt as a friend.
|by Wade Walker||reply 45||07/26/2012|
Some crazy bitch was chasing Amy at a high speed, that's why she crashed into the car. They had a minor fender bender and the bitch got out of her car and tried to grab Amy's keys out of the ignition. Amy sped away after telling the woman she was fine. Then the bitch gave chase. She's just as responsible as Amy, in fact, maybe more. Why didn't she just call the cops?
|by Wade Walker||reply 46||07/26/2012|
CONVICTED! Sent straight to jail.
|by Wade Walker||reply 48||11/27/2012|
Serve 85% of sentence before parole!
|by Wade Walker||reply 49||11/27/2012|
So sad, she was good in "Cry Baby" - that idiot woman who was following her did sort of cause the accident. I think she should be sentenced as well.
|by Wade Walker||reply 50||12/04/2012|
Stupid stupid stupid. She could've gotten a ride home from someone at that party and picked up her car the next day.
